Summary: Most leadership research has been undertaken in corporate contexts and little attention has been given to leadership development in entrepreneurial and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This book argues that the study of entrepreneurs as leaders is a gap in both the leadership and the entrepreneurship literatures. The impact of leaders is a crucial factor in the success or failure of smaller entrepreneurial firms and has implications for the understanding of new venture viability and growth. Featuring conceptual and empirical chapters from an international range of cultures and entrepreneurship and leadership ecosystems, this publication is the first of its kind to present a systematic overview of the entrepreneurial leadership field, providing a timely perspective and highlighting unanswered questions and opportunities for further research. It consolidates existing theory development, stimulates new conceptual thinking and includes empirical explorations. The intended audience includes both students and researchers in entrepreneurship.
